Alfred Pach, Ph.D., MPH SocioBehavioral Research Coordinator International Vaccine Institute Seoul, Korea
I was very fortunate to be able to work with Dr. Peter Flom on a sociobehavioral study of perceptions and attitudes regarding cholera and a vaccine against it in India.
Dr. Flom made complicated statistical tests, their application and the findings generated clear and understandable. He was especially helpful in our decision of what statistical test to use given the type of data, population and context of the study.
Dr. Flom's work was flawless and penetrating. I found him flexible, patient, insightful and an overall pleasure to work with throughout our collaboration. It is a great opportunity to work with such an expert and someone with so much experience in research design and quantitative analysis.
I look forward to working with Dr. Flom in the near future.
